Gunfight Video: Father and son get into “shootout” following heated argument

Mario Paul Clarke shoots at dad/Daily Mail

Father and son exchange fire.

ATLANTA — Mario Paul Clarke, 26, was thrown in the slammer after getting into a shootout with his father. The gunfight transpired last Friday at their residence on the outskirts of Atlanta. It was also captured on video. Home surveillance footage shows a hooded Mario and his dad exchanging gunfire in the front yard. Investigator Corey Mauldin of the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office said the father noticed Mario brandishing a gun inside the house and attempted to confiscate it. Instead of handing it over, Mario pointed the firearm at his dad. The father then ran into his bedroom and grabbed his gun.

That’s when all hell broke loose.

The donnybrook spilled into the front yard where a shootout ensued. The father eventually called 911, telling the operator “his son shot at him multiple times.” When Sheriff’s deputies arrived at the scene, they descried shell casings scattered across the lawn and three bullet holes in the front of the house.

Mario was placed in handcuffs shortly thereafter.

“The offender still had the firearm on his person when taken into custody,” the Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. Mario was charged with aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Investigators determined dad acted in self-defense so he won’t face charges.

Fortunately, nobody was hit.

Watch father and son bust some caps.

  1. These two are crazy as hell..

  2. Looks like the dad pulled the gun when the son was leaving. Dad was outside waiting to kill him. Dad shot first.

  4. Son: “I aint giving you shit!”
    Dad: “I brought you in this world and I’ll take you out!”

    biggest wtf moment of the year. That’s crazy

  10. Blacks don’t know how to raise their children in the age of social media.

  11. The Bible is fulfilling faster everyday

  12. i drivereckless in bad weather

    How do you continue a relationship with your son after this? I would never want him near me again.

  13. You should see them at a family funeral 🤣

  14. Marvin Gaye’s situation all over again…..(almost)

  16. Like father like son

  17. Pedro Gallegos

    Mario Clark Is a TOTAL P.O.S…

  18. So this is what it’s coming down to?

  19. If your son is shooting at you, then you just failed in life.

  20. Goddamn, how does it even get to this?

  21. The father pointed the gun 1st and tried to shoot the son the way it looks. I had my brother and cousins carry fire arms. I even got into a argument with one of them while he was packing. But we would never pull it out and point it at each other. Let alone try to shoot each other. If my son had a gun in his pocket I would never respond with a gun….. have any one seen Baby boy movie with Tyrese? That’s a perfect situation. … the father have failed for sure and the mom.

  22. KNOWLEDGEISPOWER

    pulled a gun on his own father. unbelievable

  23. somelivesmatter

    Is this why black fathers don’t stick around?

  24. LOL! Come on, father and son are playing laser tag🤤🤤🤤🤤🌈🍪🔥🔥🔥💯

  25. THe son was probably on some bullsh*t and pops knew it.

  26. What’s with this new gen? Its a shame some people are quick to pick up a gun thinking it will solve an issue. wtf is this? the only outcome is jail time or some1 laying in a cemetery. some many young black men going in the wrong direction. our forefathers didn’t sacrifice for this. i just can’t

  27. Lol this is almost comical.

  28. @Ashy Larry: The millineals hate their fathers because they have been trained by liberals to hate masculinity

  29. FckConEd ✔⬛️🟧

    The hatred is real and the devil is lurking.

  30. Christo Parenti

    We are living in the stupidest of times.

  31. Hey Dad can you bail me out?
    CRICKETS……

  32. The black community is not normal. It’s like a penal colony. No one escapes without scars. It makes the women rugged and violent; and makes the men effeminate and impulsive. Hedonism rules. Marriage is not tolerated. And children are laid to waste like dirty rags.

  33. KEEP HIS DUMB A*S LOCKED UP. IM GUESSING HES OUT THE WILL LMAO

  34. Quarantine got people doing strange things

  35. Then the son hid in wait by the car. He was trying to take his dad OUT. Whew 😥

  36. Its not what you do it’s how you do it!!The father is dead wrong,You DONT shoot at your son for having a gun at your house not willing to give it up.You tell him he has to leave because no one carries a gun in my house but me NOT SHOOT HIM BECAUSE HES NOT WILLING TO GIVE IT TO YOU!I understand perfectly what his dad point was because he sees troubl in the future by his son carrying a gun but you don’t know why this young man has a gun!!Its a different world for our youth!Im 50yrs old but I know most these kids carry guns out of fear not knowing what they might run into and it’s sad but it’s the truth!!I bet you a million dollars this kid has ties to the streets with gangs or drugs and needs this gun to PERTECT hisself NO IM NOT SAYING HES RIGHT BUT I RATHER MY SON BE CAUGHT WITH THIS GUN THEN WITHOUT IT WHEN THINGS TAKE A TURN BUT I cannot imagine shooting at my son for having a gun at my house Yes I would ask him for the gun and if he wasn’t willing to explain why he needed it or give it to me HE GOTTA GO RIGHT THEN!!!

  37. WOW , HE’D RATHER SHOOT HIS OWN FATHER MORE THAN HE WOULD WANT TO SURENDER HIS GUN TO HIM

    THIS IS A CASE OF THERE NOT BEING ANY LOVE WHATSOEVER BETWEEN THEM , BECAUSE IF HE HAD ANY LOVE WHATSOEVER FOR HIS FATHER IT WOULD BE ENOUGH TO KEEP HIM FROM SHOOTING HIM

    I AM GOING TO JUST PUT THIS OUT THERE AND (F)(K) HOW YOU FEEL

    I THINK IT WOULD HELP IF MORE OF THIS WERE TO HAPPEN

    NOTHING @$$ KIDS SHOOT AND KILL THEIR NOTHING @$$ PARENTS WHO DID NOTHING BUT (F) – – (K) TO BRING THEM HERE AND THEN DID NOTHING TO LOVE THEM OR TEACH THEM TO LOVE

    NOTHING @$$ PARENTS WHO SAT BY AND WATCH THEIR KIDS TURN INTO THE BRAINDEAD MONSTERS THAT THEY ARE TODAY , WHO DON’T KNOW SHTTT BUT TO GO AROUND HARMING OTHERS AS THEY ROB AND STEAL

    IF THEY SHOULD START A TREND TO WHERE THESE NOTHING [email protected]@ KIDS KILL THEIR NOTHING A$$ MOMMY AND DADDY THAT WILL BE FINE BY ME , JUST AS LONG AS THESE PIECES OF SHTTT STOIP HARMING INNOCENT PEOPLE

  38. Mr Pull Up and Smoke Everybody

    Should have shot that lil boy all in his shiit. You not my son no more.

  39. Looks like they just having father son fun playin laser tag at the arcade 🤣🤣🤣

  40. Dumb dad with an ego and 0 brains felt he had to apply pressure with a firearm rather than leaving the issue and having the cops deal with the bs. Couldve been avoided… The son thought he was gonna die seeing his dad rush like that with his gun pointed at him and nah i aint saying the son is the best either but 2 wrongs dont make a right

  41. The camera shows the son leaving the house without his weapon drawn… And then shows the father pointing his firearm at his son first as his son was leaving… So I don’t understand why the son was charged and not the father when the father clearly drew his weapon first.. And his son had his back turned and was leaving the scene… Father appeared to be the aggressor, at least on camera, with his weapon drawn on his son and then his son drew his weapon in defense… If the cops can’t see that plain and clear in the video somethings wrong.

  42. I can see why the dad didn’t want him to have a gun in his house. 😳

  43. Father’s Day is going to be an interesting day in that household.

  44. growing up my father put a knife to my throat for not changing a light bulb
    and I still would NEVER raise a finger against him..!!
    i was ready die by my fathers hands
    it would have been gods will that I died that day

  45. Thou_Shall_NotSimp

    Nah somebody smashed somebody’s wife. No other reason can make a father and son shoot it out

  46. NuDiamond Music

    Wow! You see this is why I’m glad I don’t have children! Because I would be in prison for murder if a child of mine ever EVER EVER FUCKIN TRIED TO DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS! HE OR SHE WOULD BE DEAD! NO WAY IN HELL! 🙄🤷🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️

  47. Idontcare AboutnoneofthatShit

    But people say these not the last days 🙃🤨💔💔💔 The Bible speak of these days where kids will turn against their own parents smh

  48. This whole incident is just sad BUT from what I did see in video is the father pointing a firearm sort of chasing the son, now I am not an attorney BUT wanting my firearm out of your home is more than your right BUT for you to retrieve your gun with threats & pointing a loaded gun at my face & at the same time chasing me which is what this video shows, these charges will be dismissed without prejudice bcuz I have the right to protect my life whether it is a stranger or my father….ijs, my opinion & like I said at first, entire incident is all out sad frfr…..
